CONTEST: Win a new Multi-License CD!

Postby BasiliskWrangler » Thu Jan 17, 2008 10:01 pm

Okay, this contest is for people who already own the game, either as a digital download or perhaps a previous CD. Since a couple people have expressed that they wish they had waited to purchase a multi-license CD, I figured this would be a good way to give a couple copies away!

So, have you played the game through several times and think you know everything? Well here's your chance to prove it! Answer the following 5 questions and you'll have a chance to win a new Multi-License CD containing all three versions of the game!

The Rules:

1) You must answer all of the questions correctly to be included in the drawing. Submissions containing wrong/incomplete answers will cast into the Abyss! (that would be my desktop trashcan)
2) Do not post answers here in this thread! You must send your answers to info AT basiliskgames DOT com and include your name and/or order number.
3) You do not have to be a registered forum member to participate, but as I said you must already own the game.

You have until January 31st to submit your answers. On February 1 I will take all the entries with correct answers and let the computer randomly pick two lucky people to each receive a new Multi-License CD. If you happen to already own a CD and do not want another, we will come up with something else for you.

The Questions:

1) Where are the locations of all three Easter Eggs? I need the name of the map AND the actual tile number of the chest or container where they are held.

2) There is a grave marker of a man who died from poisoning. What is his name? Bonus point if you can explain the joke.

3) How many Salamanders are in Leurik's basement?

4) What is the maximum amount of damage the spell 'Smite' can deliver?

5) What four ingredients are needed to get Father Michael's portal working (the one in the basement of his cottage).

If you have any questions, post them below! Good luck!

I figure most people are going to have to load up an old saved game and do some backtracking to get some answers. A couple answers can be found here in the forums if you're good at searching. Another couple answers can be retrieved in the first 20 minutes of the game.

Ah, I wish I could take part. I don't imagine getting far enough in the game to be able to answer a couple of the questions. I'll hang out for the next contest. :)

You may want to post this under the Announcements category, too. It was starting to slip down the page, here.

This contest for people that already bought the game is a good idea. I may give it a try. Thanks for the chance!

I started a new game. More fun that way!

Depends on how fast (or slow in my case) you play. :wink:

I seriously think this should be posted in the Announcements section of the forums, and also sent out to places like Inside Mac Games, in order to reach everyone who already bought the game.

EDIT: Just noticed it was on yesterday's IMG page.

One week to go! So far there has been only 16 correct entries, so that makes your odds of winning very good if you get your submission in...however I am expecting a flood of entries on the last day of the contest based on the number of emails I've gotten asking for "hints". :wink:

EDITED to remove a dumb, movie-reference joke I made.

I haven't had time to play the last couple of days, but I plan on finishing the game and entering before the deadline.

EDIT: Well, I've changed my mind about entering the contest. I just don't have to time to play much lately. I already own the mac version, and am happy with it, so good luck to all the other contestants!
